Aerial photo taken on Oct 6, 2018 shows the Nanmudu Wujiang River Bridge of the Lanzhou-Haikou expressway in southwest China's Guizhou Province. In southwest China's Guizhou Province, where endless karst hills dominate the land, modern transportation is made possible thanks to more than 20,000 bridges that cross over the valleys. The province easily justifies itself as a museum of bridges: among the world's 100 highest bridges, 46 are located in Guizhou. Over the four decades since China's reform and opening-up, generations of bridge builders have created various engineering miracles while battling technological challenges on tricky terrains.
